Tea and Beans in Nepal
This set is inspired by Dani Venn, who happened to mention the words 'food photography' but was likely refering to something a little more delicious than photos of dal bhat at a truck stop. But the food of Nepal is beautiful in its own way. Apple pancakes in the Annapurnas is still my favourite dish.
If you like these photos then please tell somebody!
I don't run gourmet adventures of foodie tours, but the photo tours end up getting pretty close to that equation. The difference between a good journey and a great journey is the food. Will I ever run a specialist Food Photography Tour one day? Not likely. I don't like to let work get in the way of enjoying my culinary passions. I'll stick to teaching photography on tours and sharing my love of food along the way.

Photography for Travellers
Ewen's guiding principles are simple...
"Go slow. Get closer. Look for the light."
"Photography is about showing other people how to see, to share the beauty of life. It's not a job, it's a lifestyle. We only get one lifetime, one chance to add some light into the world. Photography competitions are mostly silly. Cats are excellent."
